From the foundation year at Eynsham Primary School to MSc students at Oxford Brookes University, our young people are coming together in their groups to propagate and plant out wildflowers in Eynsham’s new meadows for the Nature Recovery Network and Long Mead's Thames Valley Wildflower Meadow Restoration Project.

the foxgloves that they planted in the autumn which are now in flower.

on rare devils-bit scabious and planted out red and white campion.

in May, have caught the Eynsham wildflower passion and returned to pot on
